  • "I have been using Carmex for forever. Nothing I've found even comes close to the moisturizing and healing this gives. Recently, I found the original version in tube form (I'm not a fan of the flavored one) and it made my day lol!" in 697 reviews

This works great as a chapstick and keeps my lips hydrated. I don’t feel like I have to constantly reapply this which is nice since I have done this with other brands. The price is super affordable as well. The only thing is that it does have a weird taste. I usually just use it before I sleep so it avoids the problem of accidentally tasting it.

I have always used Carmex when my lips are too cracked or dry to function anymore. If you are able to get past the slight stinging when the product gets into the cracks in your lips then this product can really help to heal your lips. I would highly recommend this product to people that live in a really dry place or lick their lips a lot.

I used to use Carmex all the time until I read an article talking about how medicated lip balm were bad for your lips and actually dried them out more. The article also said that your lips become addicted and you end up reapplying it all day, which was true for me. It gives the illusion of hydration but, the medicine or menthol in it does more harm. Any lip balm that is medicated is harmful to your lips.

I use this chapstick when I’m at school. It’s easy to apply, but you should always make sure your hands are clean before touching it. The price is very well for the quality. I love it and would totally recommend.

[product:2-pack---carmex-cold-sore-reliever-and-lip-moisturizer,-jar---0.5oz-each] Carmex Lip Moisturizer Pot is my GO TO WHENEVER I HAVE CHAPPED LIPS!..It always has seemed to moisturize my lips the quickest. And I also like the fact that i can still apply my lipstick on top of the Carmex and not have a mess. Super affordable,definitely recommend!

I like the balm jar better than the squeezy-tube version. The jar is thick, a little waxy, and it's super moisturizing. It functions best as a night moisturizer for the lips because it's so thick. This is also great if you have extremely dry lips. I would not recommend layering liquid lipsticks, or other lip products on top of this formula.

Works amazing, makes lips very soft and look nice. Kinda looks like you have some gloss when you put it on the only thing is I wish it tasted better doesn’t really have a smell to it. Love it I have had many and it’s what I normally use on my lips I like to put it on before I use lipsticks so my lips will stay nice and soft throughout the day.

If I’m going to use Carmex, I only use it in the jar. The others leave an awful taste in my mouth, and i can’t stand it. It’s extremely moisturizing and works really well. I love it.

I used to use this exclusively because my band director said it was the only product compatible with our instruments. I later learned that it further dries your lips and creates a need to constantly be using it. Not sure if that’s true, but I do like the medicated feel, no so big a fan of the flavor or smell. It does last a long time though.

This stuff works although it has a very strong smell and it burns your chapped list. It’s easy to apply but sometimes the lid can be hard to get off, especially if it’s cold outside!
